Summary: Worry ties God’s hands in our lives, Faith sets Him free to do as He pleases, And bible history tells us, that God likes to do amazing things in our lives, when we untie His hands with our faith?
I’ve Got a Feeling, everything’s gonna be alright!
To trust or not to trust, that is the question, the decision that is made between those two choices,
is what either gives you sweet peace of mind, or makes you worry, from worry to worry your whole life through!
TBS.(the Bible says) in Mark 6:34 NKJ
34. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
I hear you, I hear what your saying, but what about the “what ifs”?
You know, what if this, that and might happen tomorrow?
What about the what ifs?
TBS. (the bible says) let the what ifs, worry about the what ifs!
That sounds like a fabulous idea, doesn’t it? And that’s exactly what every believer should do.
After all, Gods Grace is greater than any problem we will ever face, Amen?
Its certainly biblical, we just read it didn’t we? Amen?
Then tell me why do so many people, let so much stuff get to them all the time?
Because when we worry, we make it about the capabilities of self, ourself!
We try to make it all about right living and right doing, all of the things we can control, instead of right believing!
And we find the answer to worry free living, in the verses right before our text scripture!
Mark 6:31-33 NKJ
31. “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
32. For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
33. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
The answer to stress free, worry free living, is to seek God, seek out His righteousness and trust Him to see you through!
One word from God is all you need!
if you will let Him, if you will give Him a chance, He will show you His capabilities in a big way
We, if we will admit it, know our limitations don’t we?
And no amount of effort, or worry on our part will ever increase them!
We, also on the other hand, know that God’s abilities are limitless,
but if we don’t believe that He wants to do a work in our lives, we will never give Him the freedom to go beyond what we can believe Him for!
Worry ties God’s hands in our lives, Faith sets Him free to do as He pleases,
And bible history tells us, that God likes to do amazing things in our lives, when we untie His hands with our faith?
Ephesians 3:20 NKJ
20. Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
Matthew Henry said: God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think. There is an inexhaustible fullness of grace and mercy in God, which the prayers of all the saints can never draw dry. Whatever we may ask, or think to ask, still God is still able to do more, abundantly more, exceedingly abundantly more. Open thy mouth ever so wide, still he hath wherewithal to fill it. Praise God!!
If everyone knows, how much is available from God and all He longs to do in our lives, how's come everyone's not experiencing what's available to them?
Everyone cares about the poverty level of mankind in the world, no one wants anyone to suffer lack!
But it’s a completely different story when it comes to our spiritual poverty level!
When we worry and trust only in our self effort and don’t trust in Gods endless capabilities,
Even though by the worlds standards we may achieve some form of success, we are spiritually starving ourselves to death!
There are a lot of spiritually mal nourished Christians in this world!
Anytime you rely on anything other than God, it becomes your source!
Be it self, job, spouse, parents, doctors or your own knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 3:5-10 MSG.
5-10. Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
NKJ. Says; lean not on your own understanding
Sometimes we like to lean on everything but what we know we should.
